MI AZ ÚT A DEPRESSZIÓBÓL?
WHAT IS THE PATH OUT OF DEPRESSION? <3 We often fall into depression when we don't see any SOLUTION to our problems. This can make us feel hopeless... powerless... and trapped... :( It can make us feel like giving up... because there doesn't appear to be any doable solution in sight. <3 . On the weekend, I talked to a friend of mine on the phone who had been feeling severely depressed and suicidal... When I asked him why he was feeling this way, he said it was because his therapist had said that she could not help him with his biggest problem of all: the fact that he has not been able to have a JOB due to his social anxiety. What?! The person whose job it was to help him with his problems... said that she couldn't help him with his biggest problem?! No wonder he was feeling depressed! :( . After we brainstormed, I wrote out a step-by-step SOLUTION for finding and keeping a job, and thriving in this job once he finds it. I laid out each step of this solution... how his therapist and I can support him along the way... and what self-sabotaging strategies to watch out for along the way. He has been so happy since then! <3 ALL he needed to get out of his depression was a SOLUTION... a plan... and the knowledge that there are people out there who would support him along the way! Depression, so much of the time, is simply the belief that there is no solution... that we are f*cked... I believe that there is ALWAYS a solution... All we have to do is find it! <3 Let me know if you would like to find out more about my Solution-Based Approach to Depression and Anxiety. You CAN be emotionally free! Marni Penner A Kanadai Coach :)
